What You’ll Need
- 12" large nonstick pan
- 8" medium pot
Sear ChickenHeat ½ tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towel. Season all over with ½ teaspoon kosher salt and pepper as desired. When oil is shimmering, add chicken to pan and sear until cooked through and no longer pink, about 6 minutes per side. Remove from pan and using 2 forks or tongs, shred into bite-size pieces.
Sauté AromaticsWhile chicken sears, mince garlic. Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a medium pot over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add spice mix and garlic and sauté, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
Simmer Barbecue SauceAdd ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, and ½ of apple cider vinegar to pot with aromatics over medium heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Remove pot from heat. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Stir in shredded chicken.
Make DressingWhile barbecue sauce simmers, whisk together mustard, mayonnaise, Chobani yogurt, celery seed, and remaining apple cider vinegar. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Make SlawAdd green cabbage, red cabbage, and carrots to bowl with dressing and stir to coat. Taste and add more salt and pepper as needed. Halve buns crosswise. Wipe pan from chicken clean and add buns cut-side down to pan. Toast until light golden, about 2 minutes.
Plate SandwichesTop bun bottoms with chicken and about 2 tablespoons slaw. Finish with bun tops. Enjoy sandwiches with remaining slaw alongside. Utensils optional.
